JOHN ZIEGLER

Game 418 | January 24, 1992 | John Ziegler
The Commissioner of the National Hockey League since 1977, Ziegler had no idea that he would be ousted by owners at the end of the 1992 season. He championed the expansion of the NHL by three teams in his final two years in office and was credited with stepping in to resolve a players' strike that threatened the 1992 playoffs ... a move that proved to be his undoing with owners.
